2019 Donate Life Rose Parade® Float to Reflect the Rhythm of the Heart and the Generosity of Organ, Eye and Tissue Donors Worldwide
highlights the musical diversity and rhythms of Africa. Djembe drums from Senegal, along with a Kuba drum from the Congo will carefully integrate 44 floral portraits in their beautiful design, honoring the brave lives of deceased donors. The double face suggests male, and female, past, and present generations, as well as the interconnectedness of all of those who have been touched by the power of donation. Twenty-six living donors or transplant recipients ride or walk beside the float, gathering around the drums, a giant marimba from Ghana, and an exotic kora from Burkina Faso. Read More Here.
